The BMW Group remains committed to its investment in Debrecen (225 km east of Budapest), which will lead to the production of a brand new model based on electric vehicle architecture from the middle of the decade, said András Salgó, director of corporate relations for the German automotive group's domestic interests, according to business daily Világgazdaság. 

Salgó explained that this new-generation electrical model runs under the name Neue Klasse and will represent a similar paradigm shift in the company's life as the model behind the original in the 1960s. 

However, the company avoided the question of when and with what technical content the factory could be built compared to the original plan, nor did it provide more detailed in formation on the actual location of the construction and recruitment. 

But the German premium car manufacturer insists that the production of a brand new electric model will start at the Debrecen plant from the middle of the decade.
